Thank you! So I managed to get it working mostly okay through installing openvpn and running sudo (should I actually be running this as sudo?) --config my-openvpn-config.opvn

Note: Attempting to use the gnome network settings did not work and complains it couldn't find a vpn connection. Possibly due to how the .opvn file is formatted?

It gives an error here:

Verifying archive integrity...  100%   MD5 checksums are OK. All good.

Guix does not comply with FHS [1].  So there is no /bin/bash and
/bin/rm.  We do not support third-party binary packages.  Please do not
install them on Guix system.  These packages will not work normally on
Guix.  (Yes.  There are dirty tricks to make them work.  But we do not
recommend them.)

PrivateInternetAccess provides OpenVPN access [2].  Please try the free
OpenVPN package from Guix: `guix package -i openvpn`.

Which I suppose relates to the way Guix packages software. I know it works easily on Trisquel at least, but I enjoy Guix System very much already!

Guix is very different from traditional GNU/Linux distros.  Have fun
with Guix!  And feel free to ask questions here.
